Facts in brief for voters

Early voting begins this coming Tuesday, February 19. The Texas primary has assumed unexpected national importance, despite its place in the calendar. To assist voters in learning which down-ballot candidates most closely reflect their own preferences, the wonderful League of Women Voters has published its non-partisan voter guide. LWV poses questions for the candidates to answer. The guide includes a truly neat-o diagram describing the Texas court system (on page 11), a difficult feat, and a great aid to understanding it for those not familiar with its oddities. This 28-page wonder contains much additional information, including a vita for each candidate who supplied one. Few are those who will there in person for the February 21 Clinton-Obama / Obama-Clinton live event here in Austin, but all of us properly registered to do so may vote. I’ve been watching for the appearance of this guide every day for a month now and am glad to see it available before the promosed date.
